Lindal’s John Hopkins to retire; Tetra Pak’s Paul Wharton tapped as replacement

Lindal Group’s UK Sales Director, John Hopkins, is retiring after serving 40 years with the company. Hopkins has worked in various different sales positions during his tenure such as Key Account Director, in which he secured business with Lindal’s largest customer, Unilever.

“I have whole-heartedly enjoyed my career and there is not a thing I would change,” said Hopkins. “Working with Unilever has been one of the highlights of my career and I will miss the people there, as well as at Lindal. I have been part of some exciting developments that have transformed the business over the years, and now it is time to spend more time with my family.”

Paul Wharton succeeds Hopkins. Wharton is the former Global Director of Sales Development for Tetra Pak International.
